SHARKS ANNOUNCE 2015 SCHEDULE

JACKSONVILLE – The Arena Football League and the Jacksonville Sharks announced the team’s 2015 schedule on Friday. Jacksonville will begin the 2015 season on the road against the New Orleans VooDoo on Saturday, March 28. The Sharks’ home opener is set for Saturday, April 4 against the Orlando Predators.

The Sharks’ quest for a fifth South Division title includes three matchups against the Predators, VooDoo, Tampa Bay Storm and Philadelphia Soul. The Sharks will host the Predators and Soul twice during the 2015 season, while the team will make two trips to both Tampa Bay and New Orleans.

Shark fans will have the opportunity to see the AFL’s newest franchise in action on Sea Best Field, as the Las Vegas Outlaws make their way to the Shark Tank in Week 5. The 2015 season will also mark Jacksonville’s first-ever trips to Los Angeles and Portland, as the Sharks will travel to face the KISS in Week 10 and the Thunder in Week 16.
Jacksonville’s 2015 slate also includes home-and-home matchups with the reigning American Conference Champion Cleveland Gladiators, which finished the 2014 regular season with the best record in the League.

Shark Fans will have plenty of chances to see their team at the season’s most critical stage, as three of the team’s final four regular season games will be played at home.

The AFL will once again utilize a 20-week, two-bye schedule. The Sharks will be idle in both Week 9 and Week 15.

Both the League’s national television broadcast schedule and the Sharks’ local television broadcast schedule will be announced at a later date.
